Two high-ranking Monument officials have been placed on paid administrative leave, a town trustee confirmed Thursday.

The Board of Trustees voted unanimously on Monday to suspend Town Manager Chris Lowe and Police Chief Jacob Shirk for two weeks each, said Monument Mayor Pro-Tem Don Wilson.

Wilson could not say why the two were suspended or what had prompted the board’s decision.

The vote, which was taken at the board’s regular Monday meeting, followed an executive session that involved discussion about the two officials as well as other matters, Wilson said.
